Is it time to start INDICTING members of Congress via Grand Jury?

Both the Constitution and federal law provide for Grand Juries. Yes, it’s true: We the People are STILL in authority over misbehaving members of Congress and can even form a Grand Jury as provided for under our Constitution to determine facts and recommend an indictment.

Of course it works. Behold:

In 1998, President Clinton became the first sitting president required to testify before a grand jury as the subject of an investigation by the Office of Independent Counsel. The testimony came after a four-year investigation into Clinton and his wife Hillary’s alleged involvement in several scandals including Whitewater and the Rose Law Firm. Revelations from the investigation sparked a battle in Congress over whether or not to impeach Clinton.

We the People and our concerns embody “the public interest. Whether or not Republicans throw in with Democrats on Trump’s impeachment, it may very well be past time to convene a Grand Jury to determine whether or not members of Congress have acted appropriately, first for engaging in all this nonsense on one side of the house and second, for failing to censure those that do.

Federal Criminal Procedure Rule 6(a) provides: “When the public interest so requires, the court must order that one or more grand juries be summoned.” Grand juries are impanelled in open court barring exceptional circumstances. Federal law requires that a grand jury shall consist of at least sixteen but no more than twenty-three grand jurors. Grand jurors are selected at random from a fair cross-section of the community in the district where the court convenes. It is required that a grand juror be a United States citizen, be at least eighteen years old, be proficient in the English language, not have a mental or physical infirmity and not be a felon or be facing felony charges. Grand jurors normally serve for eighteen months or less. Service usually requires meeting once or twice a month with fellow grand jurors at the location where the grand jury convenes (normally at the District Court or the local United States Attorney’s Office).

Even if Republicans maintain their ground and Trump is impeached but not convicted, We the People may STILL convene a Grand Jury to determine WHY Democrats are FAILING to DO THEIR JOBS by prancing around in all their happy anti-Trump horse shit instead of FOLLOWING THE LAW, beginning with “the supreme Law of the Land” i.e. the U.S. Constitution.
